CData BizTalk Adapter for LinkedIn

Overview

The CData BizTalk Adapter for LinkedIn enables you to access LinkedIn data as BizTalk Messages. You can work with LinkedIn data from BizTalk tools such as Send Ports, Receive Locations, Orchestrations, and Pipelines.

The adapter wraps the complexity of accessing LinkedIn data in a standard BizTalk adapter similar to the BizTalk Adapter for SQL Server. The adapter abstracts the underlying data source into tables, views, and stored procedures that can be used to retrieve and update data.

The CData BizTalk Adapter for LinkedIn hides the complexity of accessing data and provides additional powerful security features, smart caching, batching, socket management, and more.
